Re: Just Right To Fail
Dear Bank Of America,
When you spent much of the past four years currying favor with the Obama Administration, and feeding the hand that fed you (not to mention buying up Countrywide, which was cozier with the left than most), I merely shook my head; it reinforced the “plutocrats are the biggest liberals” pattern.
Bank of America has reportedly frozen the account of gun manufacturer American Spirit Arms, according to its owner, Joe Sirochman.
In a Facebook post dated December 29, Sirochman wrote the following:
“My name is Joe Sirochman owner of American Spirit Arms…our Web site orders have jumped 500 percent causing our Web site e-commerce processing larger deposits to Bank of America. So they decided to hold the deposits for further review.
“After countless hours on the phone with Bank of America, I finally got a manager in the right department that told me the reason that the deposits were on hold for further review — her exact words were — ‘We believe you should not be selling guns and parts on the Internet.’”(emphasis added)
According to Unlawful News, this isn’t the first time Bank of America has targeted a customer involved in the firearms industry.
McMillan Group International was reportedly told that its business was no longer welcome after the company started manufacturing firearms – even after 12 years of doing business with the bank.
I had no choice in becoming a customer; my mortgage got sold to you.
I spent years boycotting stores in Minnesota that posted that law-abiding carry-permittees weren’t welcome – and ten years later, the signs are mostly gone.
What do you think five million of us nationwide can do?
That is all.
